In recent years coherent and spontaneous Raman scattering of ultrashort pulses has been used for numerous studies of molecular dynamics in the electronic ground state. Application of these techniques is restricted by the selection rules and also weakness of the Raman interaction. Corresponding infrared methods taking advantage of the different selection rules and higher efficiency of electric dipole coupling have been lacking.
